1. Intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) administration of ouabain to rats induces motor hyper- and hypoactivity that have been hypothesized to model the mania and depression of bipolar illness, respectively. 2. The extent of ouabain-induced change in activity may vary according to the test environment. 3. To determine the degree of differential response to(More)
In Experiment 1, subjects received either by word or by list directed forgetting or posthypnotic amnesia instructions. Recall and recognition performance of subjects who received directed forgetting instructions was consistent with previous findings reported by Basden, Basden, and Gargano (1993), with subjects who received by word instructions showing both(More)

The intertrochanteric valgus osteotomy was first described by Pauwels (1936) and is still largely unchanged today for operative treatment of dislocations and pseudarthroses of the femur neck. The disadvantage is lateral displacement of the weight-bearing axis, which leads to valgus of the knee, dependent on the amount of intertrochanteric valgus osteotomy(More)
Die akute Mediastinitis ist trotz moderner Therapieverfahren auch heute noch mit einer hohen Morbidität und Mortalität assoziiert. Die wesentlichen Therapiebausteine innerhalb des multidisziplinären Therapiekonzeptes sind die effektive antibiotische Therapie, die intensivmedizinische Behandlung und die Entlastung der beteiligten mediastinalen Kompartimente.(More)
Between 1973 and 1978 a total of 77 patients suffering from a tumor of bone were treated and followed up at this hospital. Of these patients, 52 were found to have benign tumors and pathologic tumorlike changes of bone. 25 were found to have semimalignant and malignant tumors. This paper describes localisation of benign semi-malignant and malignant tumors(More)
An analysis of the causes of 142 humerus shaft pseudoarthroses and the examination of the results of 124 conservatively and 88 operatively treated humerus shaft fractures indicate that the conservative therapy of certain fracture types can be problematic. Consequently, an extension of the indication is recommended for operative therapy in the sense of a(More)
The effects of p-chlorophenylalanine-methylester-hydrochloride (PCPA) and reserpine on biogenic amines of the rabbit carotid body were investigated ultrastructurally and by fluorescence microscopy. The electron microscopic analysis did not indicate significantly that structural changes result from treatment with reserpine or PCPA. Fluorescence microscopy(More)
In den vergangenen 5 Jahren hat die Dynamik der Entwicklung auf dem Gebiet der computerunterstützten Chirurgie erheblich zugenommen. In diesem Zeitraum sind ¶einerseits völlig neue Anwendungen der Computerunterstützung zum klinischen Einsatz gekommen, andererseits bereits bewährte Anwendungen weiterentwickelt worden. Auch der weltweit erste aktive(More)
From 1972 to 1979, 728 patients with dislocated ankle fractures were treated by osteosynthesis at the “Bergmannsheil” Bochum. 684 patients were followed up to the time when the metal implants were removed (∼ 6.8 months post op.) : The functional result was good in 534 (78%), sufficient in 103 (15%), and insufficient in 47 (7%) cases. 306 patients were(More)
Between 1969 and 1974 1012 total hip prostheses (type Müller-Charnley) were implanted in our clinic. Reexamination 1.5 to 8.5 years after surgery on 259 cases (29 %) showed different local complications: 56 (5.5 %) were aseptic loosenings, 70 (6.9 %) infections including 51 septic loosenings. The infection rate was divided into 3.2 % early manifest and 3.7(More)
